Thats dock watching. Sitting on a dock watching a dock at sunset.

Fixing to be a pontoon in one of those slips tomorrow afternoon. Scatting a trail north bound now with the song on the mind. LOL

Jed Clampett had the cement pond. We got the cement dock. but my ponds bigger. LOL .


Offshoreapperal. I really like that set up you have. Nice.

JKO2004 .. Just looking at your dock. Leave the side polls high, even all of them out, stick you some white caps on them, and run to lowes and grab a gal of Honey Gold water seal.. One low voltage timer and some side lights and that will be a dang nice looking dock in the evenings.
Have a friend that has one about like yours. We turned it up a notch and their tickled with it. I"m guessing about 400 to 450 on the cost is all. Few beers and a little sweat and your done.

I know you didn't ask me and maybe the OP will give you a ballpark but when I was building piers a good rough estimate was material cost times 2.5ish for out the door price.

Actually, I just bought the house...dock came with it. New to me!

But, my neighbor in the back ground just had his built..about 90' long with a 10x10 deck at end and a 10k pound cradle lift...was about $12.5k.

Lots of projects in my future

Nothing fancy but does the job. Had someone set the pilings and upper I-beams on the lift and I built the rest. Even did my own stamped drawings. Three hurricanes so far (Irene, Sandy and Aurthur) with no issues including 3 ft underwater for Irene. I do pull the boats and move the ski float onto the lift for beeeeg storms.

Nice docks but why all the lights? In my town all dock lights must be shielded to shine downward only, to prevent blinding boaters. The offenders are annoying.

It isn't that bright. They are led. The photo is a bit over cooked.

More canals around here than in Venice (the Italy one) our spot is not sinking and we know we are pretty lucky with the climate.

Our only problems are all the tourists and the traffic both on the roads and the water at weekends and holidays!

not very good ones of the pier. creek we are on is 1 mile across for scale and dock is 150' long. Had someone drive the piles and I built the rest.

I do want to pimp out with led and underwater lights at some point...
